Hurricane Ian, which hit the US state of Florida after Cuba, left 2 million people without electricity. National Weather Service director Ken Graham used the phrase "This is a historic event" for the hurricane, which reached 250 kilometers per hour, while Florida Governor Ron DeSantis asked people to pray.
Hurricane Ian, which hit Cuba last week and left the country without electricity, is currently under the influence of the US state of Florida. As the hurricane speed reached 250 kilometers per hour, millions of people along the hurricane route were ordered to evacuate their homes.
The Strongest Hurricane to Hit the Country
National Weather Service Director Ken Graham said about the hurricane, "This is a historic event. It will be a storm that we will talk about for many years," while Florida Governor Ron DeSantis warned his citizens by saying, "Pray." The next two days will be very bad.
The hurricane, which the National Hurricane Center (NHC) considered 'extremely dangerous', flooded homes and roads and swept vehicles in the coastal city of Naples. Authorities say thousands of people are trapped in their homes.
Electricity Will Be Cut Off For Weeks
Experts emphasize that most of the precipitation will come from the side, at an angle, and will hit people and structures with the intensity of the hurricane. "I can't tell you the damage this will do. The electricity will be out for weeks," said Joel Klein of the National Weather Service.
While it was stated that tornadoes began to appear in the south of Florida, it was emphasized that "the situation is rapidly deteriorating" on the southwest coast of the state.
